Questions You Should Ask Before Choosing A Medical Spa
Medical spas offer a wide range of treatments that can effectively treat conditions affecting your face and body. Acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, cellulite, age spots and sun damage are several skin problems that can be treated at a medical spa. If you are considering visiting a medical spa to improve your appearance and self-confidence, be sure to ask these top three questions.
Is the Medical Spa Operated by a Doctor?
If a medical spa is owned and operated by a doctor, you should be sure that they are actually overseeing the procedures performed and doing treatments. Occasionally, doctors are associated with medical spas but actually have very little involvement in the treatments and procedures that are administered. At Laser Clinique, Dr. Alexander Ataii is the founder and Medical Director of our San Diego medical spa. When you visit Laser Clinique, you can be rest assured that P. Alexander Ataii M.D. will oversee your treatment and be available for consultations.
Who Will Perform the Procedure?
You must also consider the licensing and training of the person who will be performing your procedure. This ensures your safety during the treatment process and the quality of your results. Asking for before and after photos of previous patients will also be helpful. At Laser Clinique, Dr. Ataii is recognized for his numerous contributions to the fields of laser surgery and skin care. In addition to receiving his education at the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Southern California, Dr. Ataii is on the medical staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital, La Jolla and is a faculty member of the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine.
How Will This Treatment Benefit Me?
During your consultation, your doctor should always speak openly about the potential risk and benefits of your procedure. The doctor should also be able to clearly address any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment. At our San Diego medical spa, Dr. Ataii is highly regarded for his work with patients. He has been award the Patients’ Choice Award in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
